$GENERATE, as someone else pointed out, solves that problem for you?
(Does it scale for IPv6? I can't recall - but surely this could be
scripted too.)

I though the point of doing so was to establish with some degree of
accuracy that there were 'real people' behind the administration of said
IP, and that there was a somewhat increased level of accountability as a
result - which suggests there is infact a point.
